Calling for the re-opening of railway
By Wells Journal | Thursday, January 10, 2013, 11:00
A petition has been launched asking the Government to reopen the Somerset and Dorset Railway.
Created by James Type, the petition asks "For the Government to consider reopening the Somerset and Dorset Railway, this is now a much needed transport link from north to south."
The railway went from Bournemouth to Burnham-on-Sea via Shepton Mallet, Glastonbury and Wells and closed to passengers in 1966.
The petition closes in November. To sign go to epetitions.direct.gov.uk/pe titions/41959.
